The Sims has been around for quite some time and now they are taking to the skies in MySims Sky Heroes. The game opens with the gamer being transported to an island chain that is being menaced by the Morcuba, a past villain from other Sims editions. The lead character has lost his memory but remembers that he is a pilot. It is up to the gamer to help the freedom fighters to win back the island by creating and flying planes on missions.
This action adventure game was released on September 28th, 2010 and is available only on certain platforms. The platforms that it was released on are:
• Nintendo DS
• Nintendo DSi
• Nintendo Wii
• PlayStation 3
• Xbox 360
It is rated for those who are ten years old and over because of some of the graphic violence included in the game. It can be played online which means that it offers co op and competitive playing modes. The cost of MySims Sky Heroes is in the thirty to fifty dollar range depending on the platform that it is purchased for.
There are many positive aspects to the game which go beyond the online and offline multiplayer modes. Younger players can play just as easily as the older ones because the controls are so easy to manipulate and it does not take a lot of hand eye coordination to get the feel of the game. There is a great storyline that wraps the gamers up as soon as they begin to play and the ability to customize the aircraft is a great addition.
Some of the downsides to the game are as follows:
• Only flying that is done is during battles, no joyrides.
• Graphics are a bit archaic for a game of this caliber.
• Can be a bit fast for those who like slower paced games.
The MySims Sky Heroes is a must have for those who have a great affinity for any of the previous releases of Sims. It is a good game for gamers of any age over ten years old. There is some cartoon violence but it may not be enough for parents to really worry about. This game has been made with online capabilities so that gamers from all over the world can get together and play as a team or against each other.
